On Wednesday, December 16, 2015, ABC News correspondent and Nightline anchor Dan Harris will give a public talk at Tibet House about his amusing and deeply skeptical personal journey towards greater happiness through meditation.
After an on-air panic attack on Good Morning America, Dan Harris knew he had to search beyond workaholism and drugs to quell the insatiable, critical voice in his head. He then set off on a bizarre adventure through the worlds of spirituality and self-help, eventually discovering meditation – an effective and truly achievable way to deal with one’s critical inner voice, cultivate positive emotions, and get happier.
In addition to sharing his personal journey, Harris will also present scientific research showing the benefits of meditation – how it can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain, and how organizations ranging from large corporations to sports teams are utilizing mindfulness today to experience similar benefits in the workplace.
After the talk, Harris will sign hardcover copies of his acclaimed memoir, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story. Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir and a New York Times best seller, Harris’ memoir gives a close-up view of his fascinating journey and offers inspiration for applying meditation to one’s own life.
